My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

…..the Son of Man has come to seek and to save people who are lost.” (Luke 19:10)

The other day I misplaced my underarm briefcase. The case not only contained very important notes that I needed but also a very large check from a client. As one might imagine, I was frantic because my case was lost. I was sick over the fact that I would have to call my client and tell her that her check was lost . I prayed like it was the end of the world over this briefcase. Then, as always, the Lord came through and I retraced my steps and found the missing case which had been lost.

Later on that evening it dawned upon me. I was sick over the loss of a “thing”, albeit a valuable thing that a client had entrusted me with but nevertheless it was still a thing; a thing that can be replaced. What if I viewed the lost and was sick over those going to an eternal hell where their lives cannot be rewritten as my client’s check could have been had I not found it. For those eternally lost, there is no rewriting of history for them, they are history, a forgotten history.

I will post a dream that I had in June in 2010 concerning the above post that I will post below.

“Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. “And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores. “Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried. “In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and *saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. “And he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.’ “But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. ‘And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.’ “And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father’s house– for I have five brothers–in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’ “But Abraham *said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ “But he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!’ “But he said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”
(Luke 16:19-31 NASB)

I had the preceding passage of scripture shown to me as I was waking up the Morning of May 31, 2010

Subj: Luke 16:19-31
The Lord revealed this to me as I was waking the morning of May 31, 2010. The 2 people that Jesus talks about here are actual people I believe. One of the people is simply known as, “a certain rich man”, while the other, a beggar, is known by Jesus as Lazarus. They both suffer the same fate that is common to all men which is death. However, here is where the differences are.

1. Lazarus is known by his name and carried by God’s angels into Abraham’s bosom.
2. The rich man is not known by his name but by his sin and lifestyle and is buried.
3. The rich man realizes he is in hell and why he is there.
4. The rich man recognizes Lazarus
5. The rich man has concern for his brothers but is powerless to do anything about their condition and knows that if they don’t change, they will end up where he is.
6. In heaven you cannot sin and in hell, you can’t repent
7. In heaven you have no past and in hell you have no future

Imagine not being known by your name but your sin for all of eternity. Imagine the Lord of heaven and earth not knowing your name is the case in the above parable. Imagine being forgotten for all eternity.

My prayer for myself is that I would have a passion for the lost that I don’t have now. Only the Lord can birth such a passion in one’s heart. May the church of Jesus Christ be given such a passion for the lost.

    Hi Tony,

    Once saved always saved…Even Christ Jesus prayed to the father that He would protect and keep all of them that believed in His name, that He is the Savior of all us. So when we stand before the bema seat of Christ Jesus in heaven for our rewards, some will get many while others get few. But He said, to those that believe in His name, so we can not be the judge, only God can judge. But the Lord prayed heavy for us to the Father to save us all for Him. So Back to John 14,15,16 and be encouraged that He knows us and wants us for Himself. God bless and know that your are saved, that we need to continue to serve Him, and be His witnesses. Marsha

    An interesting reminder plus analysis of the story of beggar Lazarus and wealthy who?

  3. Hi Tony, may I ask how those 7 differences turned up? You may be aware of number 7 turning up for me recently (at
    Also, this weekend visiting teacher Charlie Shamp referred to its occurrence in Elijah’s prayer for rain (1Kings18) when ministering from the glory realm. He suggested we check our mouths 7 times for new teeth and gold fillings – one lady reported 3 appearing over the 3 days!
